Ben Roethlisberger will probably wear a helmet the next time he's on his motorcycle.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl-winning quarterback is in serious but stable condition after suffering a broken nose and jaw in a motorcycle accident in downtown Pittsburgh yesterday.
Doctors say the multiple facial fractures were successfully repaired during more than seven and a-half hours of surgery.
The lead surgeon says doctors didn't discover any other serious injuries.
Police say Roethlisberger wasn't wearing a helmet when his bike hit a car traveling in the opposite direction.
Roethlisberger was thrown from his bike on impact.
Roethlisberger has said he likes to ride without a helmet, a habit that led to a stern lecture from Steelers coach Bill Cowher.
